Daniel Radcliffe announced the competition with a reading of an iconic scene from Susan Hill’s original novella.
Radcliffe adds some advice for potential entrants, “For all you budding writers out there remember that it’s 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration so good luck and I can’t wait to see what spooky stories you guys come up with in the coming months”
The competition will run exclusively on YouTube. Entrants have to upload short videos of themselves reading their original ghost story through the film’s official YouTube page. The competition closes on the 20th of December 2011, whereupon ten finalists will be chosen and voted for by the public. The winner will be announced on the 6th of January 2012.
A full set of terms and conditions are available on the YouTube channel.
